A preliminary hearing was rescheduled Tuesday for a man accused of shooting and seriously wounding another man in Desert Hot Springs.

Carlos Anthony Beltran, 38, of Desert Hot Springs, is charged with attempted murder and assault with a semi-automatic firearm in connection with the May 16, 2018, shooting in the 66100 block of Second Street.

Beltran, who remains jailed in lieu of $1 million bail, is scheduled to return to court Jan. 29 for his preliminary hearing, during which a judge will determine if there is enough evidence for Beltran to stand trial.

Desert Hot Springs police said officers found the victim “suffering from a life-threatening gunshot wound,” and he was taken to Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs. Beltran’s relationship, if any, to the victim, has not been disclosed.

He was taken into custody near the intersection of 12th Street and Palm Drive in Desert Hot Springs, according to county jail records.

The arrest was the result of a collaboration between the Desert Hot Springs Police Department and the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department’s Fugitive Warrant Enforcement Team, according to police.

Beltran also faces allegations of causing great bodily injury and committing the crime while out on bail.
